Feeling down at the prospect of turning 30…I will be given a personal challenge a month until my 31st birthday! I do not know what each monthly challenge will be until the “tasksetter” informs me… the first of my twelve challenges was given to me on my 30th birthday, on the 14th August! With one month to complete each task, I am given a challenge every month. Follow me as I try to complete to the challenges ahead! more info…
I just saw the movie ‘Ghost Shark’…it had a surprisingly complex and emotional storyline but it wasn’t as good or as bad as ‘Sharknado’! Really getting into the B-movies you just never know what is going to happen unlike every Tom Cruise movies where you know he will be the heroine everytime…well, almost everytime.
Next on the mockbuster list of must sees are ‘Avalanche Shark’, ‘Sharktopus’ & ‘Snakes on a Train’! All loosely based on true stories!
I’m off to bed…
Just home from a weekend Krav Maga ‘Self Defence’ course! I thought I knew what to expect but in reality it was quite different in terms of it being way too real and way too accurate in what happens in the real world. 25 students and 4 instructors threw themselves into it with 100% committment. It was hard, gruelling, scary, brilliant and so practical.
I always thought of myself and being streetwise and not being afraid to walk the city streets alone at night time. However, all too often the media sheds light on some poor, unfortunalte person’s experience where the evil on the streets somehow tracks them down. Though they said they hope we don’t have to ever use this, our instructors taught us what we need to do to best protect ourselves and give us our best chance of getting out of a potentially life threatening situation in order to go home to see our families again should that evil track us down.
I sit now at the laptop on Sunday evening, sore in many places, I winced in paintrying to pull down the sun visor in my car on the way home from the course. But it’s a fitful pain and I wear this pain with pride and in testiment to how far and hard our instructors pushed us in an action filled two days. They brought out something in me that may very well end up saving my life one day.
I loved the course and would recommend anyone, everyone to do it. So, thanks to Patrick, Colm, Mick and Joanne. BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!!!
